Drama Kings: The Men Who Drive Strong Women Crazy

Front Cover
Rodale Books, Oct 17, 2006 - Self-Help - 224 pages

In her newest book, the best-selling author of The Erotic Silence of the American Wife examines a rising trend in today's relationships—the coupling of high-achieving women with weaker men she terms "drama kings," who are drawn to the women's strength but ultimately attempt to sabotage it. These men create chaos in relationships, driving women crazy in the process. Weaving examples from history, literature, and popular culture with clinical research she has conducted over several decades, Heyn details the telling traits of drama kings—and arms women with strategies to extricate themselves from these toxic relationships.
